>no speccy threads
let's fix that guys, cause we're all pretty gay desu senpai
>OC'd to a decent 4.4 ghz
I was young and naive and fell for the triple monitor meme
should've bought one nice 4k monitor with what I spent on the three monitors
Here are my shitty specs and I've got a question which I will ask here since /stupid questions/ is nowhere to be found.
Currently rocking AMD FX-4350. Obviously not the best CPU out there. Would it be worth it to upgrade to something like AMD FX-8320? What else would you suggest?
Don't worry, I fell for the same thing. CSGO on triple monitors was fun for like 1 week.
Fortunately I just have a single windforce 290 so not too much buyers remorse.
Just buy a nice 4k monitor on black friday with me. Even considering a single 40 inch 60hz 4k TV.
I feel sorry for every faggot in this thread that went past LGA775,the master race of computing.
Will do when I get home.
I can list my specs though.
Gigabyte windforce R9 290 4GB
i5 4590 (non k) w/ stock
16GB (want to upgrade too... ram is addictive)
x2 1080p 24 inch in portrait
x1 1080p 27 inch landscape in the middle
Crucial 256GB SSD.
WD Black 1TB HDD.
Seagate 2TB SSHD.
Why do I have this shit memorized...
omg, micro meters
>what is this I don't even
It might not be much but im happy with it
I'm thinking about upgrading becuase I'm feeling the itch to play Fallout 4 and replay some games I already finished with higher settings, but I don't know what to do. Options I've considered:
1 - Buy a GTX 960 4GB (205-215€) and maybe an SSD (45-89€)
2 - Buy a 970 and an i5 2500k from ebay (not really my thing) (~500€)
3 - Blow the wallet and buy a Z97-A, i5 4690k, 970 and SSD (~800-850€)
4 - Spend the money on booze, hookers and gambling instead
They are fine, and that's about it. AMD releases new drivers so rarely these days things rarely change, and that goes for both performance and stability. I've had no problems with the current version but i've had crashes with past driver version. The driver meme is pretty much dead these days in my opinion.
This ones mine btw
There was just a driver release yesterday.
Fairly happy with this build, waiting on Pascal to upgrade GPUs. Gonna swap out the SSD to a SanDisk Extreme PRO or Samsung 850 Evo depending on what one gets a bigger discount on black Friday.
Still waiting for a 21:9 IPS 1440p G sync monitor with a refresh rate of >100 before I sell off my Korean reject monitor.
haha all you intel fags, get on 5ghz you shits, might as well just buy your self a airbook.
how do you even browse high quality porn with sub 5ghz, do you not dedicate a core to each browser tab
And a second 1080p monitor that is not connected right now.
I was looking for a ~200€ card that was silent, and I would have gotten a 380 Nitro which stops its fans in idle if only it could have fit in my case (height issues). So a reference factor 960 from Evga (not the cooler, but at least the pcb size) was the best option for me. And pretty much every 960 doesn't spin its fans until 60°C.
A 280x should be better, but I wasn't necessarily looking for the best fps/money ratio only.
I'm pretty retarded with this OC'ing so I haven't tried anything with this computer. Do I have any really glaring bottlenecks?
Picked up almost all the parts for $75, Picked up a cutsom rig someone else put together for super cheap.
it had a dual core richland that was garbage, slowest "modern" cou ive ever used. Replaced that with a 750k + Cm Hyper 212 replaced 4gb 1866 with 8gb and threw in an SSD and gpu
Whole new beast.
LOL the "Anniversery Edition" pentium is shit.
How can you possibly come across as an elitist and yet recomend that abonination. The only thing it does well is overclock.
Im on a budget so why would I replace the motherboard in the first place. Like I said I didnt build the rig, just upgraded it on a budget.
g3258 and 750k is the same price not to mention he can use the motherboard he already has for the 750k I dont get how you thought that response was valid, even if it was just a troll response.
Not to mention the pentium is a dual core...
Because stock g3258 is much faster than 750k?
Also unless you're a gayman autistic faggot you don't even need 4 cores.
Benchmark performance using all cores
Athlon X4 750k
Individual core benchmark performance
Athlon X4 750k
I already had the FM2 board, how is switching to the pentium and buying a new board a better budget decision then sticking with the socket and buying a cpu similar in performance.
Do you know what budget means?
tdp relevence for budget build or pefmance is 0 to even try to argue that is just grasping at straws.
My 750k is at 4.5ghz show me some pentium benchmarks at 4.5ghz garuntee any bench that takes multithreading into account will favor the athlon.
Wasnt this a budget arguement? You lost that so you are trying to justify your post anyway you can.
This is flat out wrong, the 750K beats the G3258 in well optimized programs. Reality is however that programs are more often than not terribly optimized with G3258 taking the cake more often than not.
Often forgotten is multi-tasking, a 750K will trash a G3258. Trying to render on one screen and browsing on another is terrifically slow on a G3258 but doable on a 750K.
I think he has one, and for some reason is experiencing high levels of buyers remorse. First he was arguing my rig wasn't a budget build because it didnt have the pentium, when he realized that argument made no sense he switched to talking about tdp and performance after overclocked.
390X is at 1180/1700 with +50mv, doesn't go any further regardless of volts/aux.
People say I need a new cpu, holding back my 980ti, is this true?
That's one big bottleneck, anon.
>getting a 980Ti for 1080p
Running at turboboost 3.7 ghz because i don't want to overclock and possibly fuck up my cpu. Might upgrade to a new gpu at some point, but otherwise the 670 has lasted a pretty long time and still does well in newer games.
G3358 is faster, but when an application needs more than 2 cores(like gta v) it's at a severe disadvantage.
got a garbage chip, at least temp is ok at 1.28v & 4.4Ghz, even with the window closed.
legitimately don't know how my PC compares to the average /g/ one
Yeah, that's what I thought when I wound up with it, but it performs better than both my Latitude E6510 (i5 520M, 4GB DDR3, iGPU) and my terrible old desktop (C2D E8400, 4GB DDR2, GS450 1GB). Has a broken screen that I haven't bothered fixing since I just use it as a desktop.
I don't think it reports temps correctly, it's only ever slightly warm to the touch and the fan only gets loud when I'm playing a game.
